mitt romney is significantly down in the important swing states. does your strategy shift now and if so how? >> i think he has to be aggressive, without seeming to be aggressive and i think it's a tricky act for him to pull off. i think that his supporters realize that he is probably behind as the polls indicate and that he needs to really change some minds tonight. i think in some way there's more pressure on president obama simply because the polls indicate and most people expect that he will win the debate and that's a tough position to be in. but at the same time because governor romney has to do so much more -- he has to change the course of this race tonight, and that puts an enormous amount of pressure on him. so he is going to try to be aggressive, but his advisors in one ear are saying be aggressive, and in the other ear they are saying be a nice guy. the president's popularity ratings are high. you can't be too over the top and come off unlikable. >> cenk: i think that's it exactly. and can he pull off that really tough balance. >> jennifer: the president got the flip of th

had to reach across the aisle -- >> what would you do as president. >> romney: i'll sit down with leaders and continue -- as we did in my state, we met every month for -- monday for a couple of hours. there's common ground and the challenges america faces right now -- the reason i'm in this race is there are people that are really hurting in this country, and this deficit could crush the future generations. there are developments around the world that are of real concern and republicans and democrats both love america, but we need to have leadership in washington that will bring people together and get the job done, and could not careless if it is a republican or a democrat. i have dope it before and i'll do it again. >> mr. president. >> obama: governor romney will have a very busy first day, because he is also going to repeal obamacare. but my philosophy has been i will take ideas from anyone as long as they are advancing the opportunities for middle class families. that's how we signed three trade deals into law that are helping us to double our experts and sell more american p

that mitt romney has to live down is that november 8th new york times op-ed piece where he essentially advocated the bankruptcy of the american automobile companies. and it sort of -- he has the reputation of having been willing to sacrifice the automobile business. i don't think that's true. if he had been president, he would have done the same thing that obama did. but this is one he's going to have to explain, i think. >> he asked the romney campaign about that, they said gm didn't actually go through bankruptcy not the one we're talking about. bill clinton today in ohio tried to explain why the race is not as tight as it should be. he says it's largely about the auto industry. does romney walk that op-ed back today? >> you know, i don't know. i just think that mitt romney needs to come out -- needs to do what -- needs to state what he really believes in. which is the importance of american industry. the importance of the american economy. the importance of the private enterprise system as opposed to one that's directed by the government. and when it comes to the -- gett

patriotism, and mitt romney by talkin talking about trickle-down government. and they took off from there. it seemed that shaped a lot of where the conversation went. >> i would have liked to have seen more than themes, actually. i thought a lot of the themes got lost-- they crammed each answer with too many specifics, too many details, too many planks in the platform in each different answer. it was kind of lost. i'm not sure voters who are not paying attention to politics. we know the background to all these issues but i'm not quite sure what they'll get out of it if anything. >> woodruff: that's my question, are voters -- we followed some of this but it was pretty dense at times, wasn't it. >> it was. the president's theme was how the burdens and benefits of governmented ought to be distributed. he kept coming back to that. that we were sort of all in this together. and what surprised me, i guess, about mitt romney was he used the-- as a credential, the governorship of massachusetts more tonight than he has in the past 11 months. it's just remarkable. you would have thought he went fro

camera, to the voters and they feel good that romney, in their view, was doubling down on policies, but ultimately, performance wise, this was a strong night for mitt romney. >> david muir, we saw the big smile on mitt romney immediately after the debate. some results already coming in, romney's odds going up. >> yeah, that smile spills relief on romney's face tonight. within the campaign, too, george. in fact, i got a text before the debate was over from a key adviser who said "mission accomplished." the governor looked to put the president on the defensive. they think that was accomplished here tonight. also, you heard governor romney right out of the gate come out here and talk about a woman that he met on the trail in a last couple of days, talking about economic hardship. that was another hurdle that romney tried to cross, connecting with average problems facing americans, not a surprise that he talked about women on the trail and in key states, key battleground states, what they believe that as you mentioned, george, no knockout punch here tonight, but it was a strong perform

-- >> romney: i have to respond. my experience as a governor if i lay down a piece of legislation and say my way or the highway, i don't get it done. when ronald reagan ran for office he laid out the principles that he was going to foster, lower tax rates, broaden the base. you have said the same thing. those are my principles i'm going to work together with congress to say okay what are the various ways we could bring down deductions for instance. one way would be to have a single number, maybe can have deductions up of that amount and then that number disappears for higher-income people. one could follow simpson boles. there are all kinds of ways to achieve the objective i have. and with regards to health care you had remarkable de25i8s with regards to my preexisting condition plan. i do have a plan that deals with people with preexisting conditions, that's part of my health care plan. and what we did in massachusetts was a model state by state. the federal government taking over health care for the entire nation is not the course for america to have a stronger more vibrant econ

tuition low for our young people. when it comes to our tax code, governor romney and i both agree that our corporate tax rate is too high. so i want to lower it. particularly for manufacturing, taking it down to 25%. but i also want to close those loopholes that are giving incentives for companies that are shipping jobs overseas. i want to provide tax breaks for companies that are investing here in the united states. on energy governor romney and i, we both agree that we've got to boost american energy production. and oil and natural gas production are higher than they've been in years. but i also believe that we've got to look at the energy sources of the future like wind and solar and biofuels and make those investments. so all of this is possible. now, in order for us to do it we do have to close our deficit. and one of the things i'm sure we'll be discussing tonight is how do we deal with our tax code and how do we make sure that we are reducing spending in a responsible way but also how do we have enough revenue to make those investments? and this is where there's a differenc

a candidate. but this is the mitt romney that they described to me as he sat down at a table and did a deal. he had a cycle of themes that he wanted to keep coming back to. the objective realities of the economy and what's going on within it. the fact that he would not raise taxes, he insisted, on the middle class. he accused the president at one point of not knowing what he was talking about when it came to deductions for jobs overseas. and at the conclusion he came back again to the whole idea that he thinks the private sector can do a much better job than the federal government can do and that the president has not delivered on his own promises of four years ago. the president has a tough brief to defend, on the other hand. the economy is still not in very good shape. obama care, however you may feel about it, is a complex piece of legislation. so tonight probably, and i don't like to make these kind of judgments generally, tonight will gladden the hearts of a lot of the republican operatives and the people who are working for him in the states around the country. the big issue is
